Clinton Bets on Rangers-Senators

AP

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton holds a New York Rangers jersey as Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird holds an Ottawa Senators jersey following a meeting of the G8 foreign ministers at Blair House in Washington.

The Ottawa Senators hockey team has extra incentive to win the playoff series against the New York Rangers: a chance to tease America's top diplomat by making her wear their jersey.
 
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made a wager with Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird ahead of Thursday night's opening game in New York. If the Rangers win, Baird must wear New York blue. If the Senators prevail, Clinton must don Ottawa red.
 
"I'm pretty confident that you'll look good in blue," said Clinton, who represented New York in the U.S. Senate. 
 
Baird said he'd give Clinton the jersey of his favorite player, center Jason Spezza, if the Senators win.
